Under the Lights; Local hoop stars battle on TV today

local showdown

Today at 5 p.m., the Big 10 Network has a matchup with major local implications. Indiana, led by 6-10 freshman sensation Noah Vonleh of Haverhill (13.7 points, 11.7 rebounds), the Human Double-Double, will be squaring off with Stony Brook and 6-10 sophomore Scott King of Derry (5.7 ppg).

Ones that got away

North Reading High is enjoying a strong season (6-4) but a lot of town talent is flourishing elsewhere. Pingree has sophomore QB Griffin Beal (1,748 passing yards, 19 TD passes, 6 TDs in 8 games) and 6-5, 225-pound fifth-year senior tight end Kyle Lentini, a tri-captain who was an Eagle-Tribune All-Star basketball player at North Reading High. Also, junior Chris Cervizzi rushed for 1,081 yards and scored 15 TDs Brooks.

Historically St. John’s has hurt North Reading with the four talented Coppola brothers coming to mind.

Dynamic duo

Paced by two local stars, Notre Dame of Tyngsboro volleyball made the Division 3 North final for the second straight year. Senior Colleen Martin of Andover is a three-sport star (basketball, 3-event CAC track champ), secretary of the student council and sports editor of the school paper.

Junior Cathryn MacGregor of North Andover was league MVP in volleyball and already has well over 400 career kills. In track, she’s thrown the javelin an impressive 110-7. She’s an AP student and a member of the glee club.

Cakes are baking

UTL birthday wishes go out to Pinkerton pitching legend Jay “The K” Yennaco (38 today), Pinkerton’s record-setting running back Manny Latimore (18 tomorrow) and Plattsburgh State hockey player Patrick Hermans of North Andover (20 tomorrow).

Captains corner

Thanks to all the ADs and coaches who have enabled us to run pictures of 66 sets of team captains in the paper this fall.

An A-plus goes to North Andover and A.D. Jon Longley for sending in nine sets of captains. Here is the breakdown.
